Julep Eloise Review and Swatch

Eloise is another awesome creation by Julep.  This came in my October 2012 Maven's Choice Box.  Eloise is the polish that made me choose this box because I don't have any blues like this.

Julep Eloise

As you can see, it's a beautiful creamy navy blue.  This is opaque in one or two coats and glides on like butter.  This is another great alternative to black.  I love the fact that it's dark, but not so dark that it looks black.  

Julep Eloise

Eloise is now available on the Julep site and I highly recommend it.  If you don't have a Julep account and would like to try it, feel free to click the link on the bottom of my blog or go straight to their site to take a short style quiz and sign up.  You can try the first box for a penny by entering COLOR2012 in the Coupon Code Section.  You can change your box or skip a month at any time.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This color is soooooo gorgeous and so me!! I wonder how similar it is to Sinful Colors Rainstorm. This is making me kick myself that I skipped!

    1. I haven't seen Rainstorm. It seems like Sinful Colors has so many dupes...and at such a great price.

  3. This color is beautiful on you, good find! It is great for fall, and all year round come to think of it.

    Your pictures and nails look great, and they go perfectly with your sweater! This does look like it is in the family of Rainstorm, a close sister? That sounds like a great polish for today as we just got our first rain in over three months.

    1. Thank you so much. Where do you live? We haven't gotten rain all summer either! It just started drizzling on and off the past few days. Our poor grass!

  4. Now isn't that just gorgeous! I love Julep's polishes and of course I am a Maven. I have Eloise and it just does not photograph well. It is so pretty.

  10. That looks amazing on you! The color is great, though I'm so scared to wear dark colors because my skintone is pretty pale. Also, it always looks so messy on me, I don't know how you get the polish to look so clean and even around your cuticle area. You should post some tips on that! :)

    1. I wouldn't worry about your skin tone. Mine is pale too. I think you should try one. As far as the messy part - I know lots of people do cleanup afterwards with pure acetone and a small eyeliner brush. I haven't had to do that yet...I am just really careful when painting and I keep the brush pretty far away from the cuticle. Just don't try to paint right up to the cuticle. You are missing out on some dark colors - try it:)
